I would imagine using a bottle opener like this would be disastrous, wont people just knock over the beer trying to open this?

that's why a person pry's the beer up not down like this bottle opener!

^^ Lol... Practice makes perfect! Aaaand for the record you can use these either direction without knocking it over.

I just bought a stack of these from CB2 a few days ago.
They came in mail yesterday. They are much larger than I thought they would be - larger than a closed fist. They are really fun and vibrant colours, and will be great for backyard parties. Keep the heathens from banging bottle tops off on my table edges when they're drunk!

Cultural mis-label. The face designs are from Beijing Opera (CHINESE), not kabuki theater (JAPANESE).

Not to mention $3 for a bottle opener is criminal!

For three, s/h is $4.95, for a total of $13.80 (3 x $2.95 + s/h). I checked eBay, and "glassyu" is selling them for $2.88 each + 50 cents s/h... for three, that would be $10.14 (3 x $2.88 + 1.50 s/h)

BTW, nskripchun is right about the mislabeling. Someone at Crate & Barrel needs to get their facts straight. But criminal pricing? Most sellers are asking ~$5. Perhaps you can get them for a much lower retail price in China, but I wouldn't count on it. There has been a lot of price inflation in China the past few years.

It's NOT a Kabuki, but Chinese Peking Opera mask ().

Hmm, I posted a site that has 'em for $2.47 with free shipping but it was later deleted. What's up with that?

They are 4.95 EUR at stores here. That's like $7.50 each. $3 is a great deal.

And they are very nice looking. Bright, vibrant colors.

I have a friend that would love these, in for 3.
